AMD reportes in their technotes for procs (duron/athlon) 'under 1Gh'
a temp of 90C (95C for above 1Gh) for the proc as deadly while the
case shoudn't go over 40C. I didn't understand all their technical
explanations. But they roumored about a difference between the temp
of the environment ('the room') an the temp in the case of 7C because
of some pysical circumstance around colling effects. So I think they
mean that the (AMD recommended) coolers only cool right when
the case temp is not about 40C and there's a lower room temp to
'move the heat away'.
